Sister Theresa Marie Hoguet, a member of the Bon Secours congregation and a nurse, died of renal failure Tuesday at her order's retirement home in Marriottsville. She was 76.
Born Ann Hoguet in Yeadon, Pa., she entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Bon Secours in 1948 and received the name Theresa Marie. She earned a diploma at the Bon Secours Hospital School of Nursing in 1953.
She worked in Baltimore and Philadelphia and did additional studies in France, where she was a nurse for several years. She later held nursing posts in the United States, France and Italy.
"Her background and experience in nursing helped prepare Sister Theresa Marie to be a chaplain, a capacity she worked in for many years," says Sister Alice M. Talone, president of the Sisters of Bon Secours, U.S.A.
"Blessed with an ability to listen, many people felt at ease about confiding in her, and because of her sensitivity towards people, she always earned their trust."
A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. today at the Bon Secours Provincial House Chapel, 1525 Marriottsville Road in Marriottsville.
Survivors include a brother, George Hoguet of Philadelphia; and a sister, Sister Mary Rita Hoguet of Philadelphia.
